Your body learned to recruit more muscle fibers while under maintenance. Your body learned to adapt. You didnt build shit. You cant build a house without material, you cant build muscle without food.

@Sauce if you can go into the science behind it or possibly show me an article or anything, I'd love to learn and would really appreciate it.

I'm not trying to start a shitstorm. And I 100% agree in the eat clean lift hard motto. But the things you guys are talking about is so ridiculously hard to achive naturally (Body recomping) and i just feel is bad advice to give a new lifter. Im obviously against starving yourself to lose weight, and im against dirty bulking heavy to gain. I think bulking and cutting periods a few hundred cals over and under is optimal and significantly easier then trying to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time.

I also hope that this isnt getting in the way of your competition.
